Compliance Software firm expanding after securing Innovate UK Funding

Posted on: 5 August 2021

Belfast based software company Obbi Solutions, has just secured significant funding from national body, Innovate UK which will see new jobs created in both tech, sales and customer support in the coming months.

Obbi Solutions is a multi-award-winning software platform for integrated compliance of people, processes and safety through HR, Operations and Health and Safety teams. It enables firms to revolutionise and connect paper or manual processes into an automated workflow to save time, money and mitigate risk.

Gareth Macklin, Founding Director of Obbi Solutions said, “We are extremely honoured that we have been awarded the funding of £300,000 from Innovate UK. This was a nation-wide competition with almost 3,000 entries so to know that they believe in our solution just as much as we do and want to help us grow makes us immensely proud”.

Securing this funding now enables us to accelerate our growth plans quicker than we have ever imagined. Our Software Development team will now be expanding, along with our sales and customer support teams.

With concrete plans of growth with our solution, alongside expanding our team, this is an extremely exciting time for the entire Obbi team. We believe Northern Ireland has some of the finest talent out there, which is why we are exceptionally proud to be able to offer additional roles within Obbi, sooner than planned, because of Innovate UK.”

Obbi Solutions is a multi-sector solution with key markets including Manufacturing, Engineering & Waste but has adapted and evolved recently into sport through Golf clubs, all under the integrated compliance umbrella.

“The need for an integrated compliance, health and safety system in Golf Clubs particularly stood out as a gap in the market where we’ve already secured some of the top golf clubs across Northern Ireland as clients. For many clubs, implementing, managing and documenting Health & Safety legislation to demonstrate compliance is difficult but it’s a problem we know we can help clubs with easily.

“We are delighted that Innovate UK see such value and impact in what we’re doing. We’re immensely grateful to everyone who’s helped us along the journey so far and cannot wait to launch the next chapter of Obbi.”
